parsleyGRASONVILLE, MD – Thursday morning – Many people think of parsley only as a garnish on their plate when they go out to dinner but parsley is much more! Parsley is great to add to cooking recipes as it adds lots of flavor. Did you know that you need to add fresh parsley to your recipe at the end of cooking as heat destroys its vitamins and minerals? All culinary herbs are digestive herbs and parsley is no exception. So along with great taste, parsley is good for you because it is chock full of vitamins, minerals, iron, potassium and Vitamin C. Dried parley is not as good for you as fresh as it loses much in its dry state. Freeze parsley for winter use so you can enjoy all its culinary and medicinal attributes. Medicinally, parsley is good for digestion, gas, for the stomach and live, it’s diuretic, and as mentioned full of vitamins and minerals. There are a few cautions to be aware of: do not to use if pregnant as it causes uterine contractions, don’t use if you have kidney or heart disease. One quarter cup of parsley supplies 1/3 of your daily vitamin C requirement. Next time you see a bunch of fresh parsley at the store (or if you grow it in your garden), get a bunch and enjoy the wonderful medicinal qualities and yummy flavor that parsley adds to your life! >>Candace
